How do you get quiet enough in our noisy,
fast paced world
to experience Easter?
While all of nature seems to have come alive outside my window
my heart longs
to watch with Him
to wait with Him
to stand with Him.
Not out of obligation or duty.
Certainly not because it’s the thing to do.
No, I simply yearn to be there with Him.
And so I steal some moments of quiet in the dark of the night
while many sleep
and I try to imagine I was there
and I pray.
Or sometimes I get up early and slip quietly to a comfy chair
and simply wait in His Presence.
But maybe it’s not where I am.
Maybe it’s just coming to Him.
Just as I am.
To stand as it were at the foot of the cross
and reflect on the finished work of Christ.
To reconsecrate myself to His service.
He gave His all.
His love demands my all.
My soul, my life, my all.
Unworthy as I am.
Letting His Love wash over me
covering all of my sins and whispering
I give you my all.
